(»Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. The seasonally adjusted data include an arbitrary smoothing of crop production, standard seasonal 
adjustments for live-stock items and a seasonal adjustment for earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board. Because of the arbitrary elements too precise an interpretation 
should not be given the seasonally 'adjusted figures for this item. 

OThis item differs from column 4, bottom of page 6, in that it excludes undistributed earnings (and the inventory valuation adjustment) of the Canadian 
Wheat Board. Source: Quarterly Reports; National Accounts, Income and Expenditure, D.B.S.

'"In industries where long-term contracts involve the receipt of progress payments, all such payments are treated as sales. The series represents an estimated 
projection, on a monthly basis, of the latest available Census of Industry values. '"Total new orders received during the period, at estimated selling values. The 

series cover total New Orders, net of cancellations, regardless of whether the orders will be filled from stock or as a result of activity during the same month (and also 
be reported as shipments in the month received) or whether they will be added to existing backlogs. '"Estimated total unfilled orders on books at end of month, 

irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these 
•ndustries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated year-end 
total values for each industry as obtained from annual surveys. "'Manufacturing inventory owned by manufacturers, whether held at plant or not, at end of period.

•Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5,000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

'"In the upper section of this table, the annual statistics prior to 1955 embrace all steam railways, while monthly averages for 1955 and monthly data refer to 
railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. "'Revised series. The Canadian Pacific, Canadian National and Quebec North Shore and Labrador 

railways now use the "Uniform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Raibvay", which became effective January 1, 1956. The 17 remaining railways 
included in these statistics do not currently use the "Uniform Classification", but will be required to do so as from January 1, 1957. ("Operating income equals 

operating revenues less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. «'The 1956 figures are not strictly comparable with 

previous years, due to the addition, in January, of 5 railways and the deletion of one. On a comparable basis, revenue tons carried in January 1955 would have been 
13,600,000, revenue tons carried one mile 6,081 million, revenue passengers carried still 2-4 million and revenue passengers carried one mile 201 million.

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 31 companies operating in Canada representing 86 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. <»The Canada totals for most months in 1954 and 1955 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national 

total are not yet available for the provinces. Although the Canada totals are comparable throughout, the provincial monthly data for 1955 are not strictly comparable 
with those of 1954 due to changes in the manner of reporting new business by several companies. For the same reason, monthly data for 1956 are not comparable with 
those of 1955. On a comparable basis, the Canada total in May, 1956 was 19% above that of May, 1955. The annual figures for Canada and the provinces are 
consistent, although the 1955 data are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance Agency Management

excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives).

'"Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. The seasonally adjusted data include an arbitrary smoothing of crop production, standard seasonal 
adjustments for live-stock items and a seasonal adjustment for earnings of the Canadian Wheat Board. Because of the arbitrary elements too precise an interpretation 
should not be given the seasonally adjusted figures for this item. 

<»>This item differs from column 4, bottom of page 6, in that it excludes undistributed earnings (and the inventory valuation adjustment) of the Canadian 
Wheat Board. Source: Quarterly Reports; National Accounts, Income and Expenditure, D.B.S.

("In industries where long-term contracts involve the receipt of progress payments, all such payments are treated as sales. The series represents an estimated 
projection, on a monthly basis, of the latest available Census of Industry values. ("Total new orders received during the period, at estimated selling values. The 

series cover total New Orders, net of cancellations, regardless of whether the orders will be filled from stock or as a result of activity during the same month (and also 
be reported as shipments in the month received) or whether they will be added to existing backlogs. ("Estimated total unfilled orders on books at end of month, 

irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these 
industries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated year-«nd

•Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5,000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

<>>The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 1956, stands at 901, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation.

(1) In the upper section of this table, the annual statistics prior to 1955 embrace all steam railways, while monthly averages for 1955 and monthly data refer to 
railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. ("Revised series. The Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, and Quebec North Shore and Labrador 

and Pacific Great Eastern railways now use the "Uniform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Railway" The 17 remaining railways included in these 
statistics do not currently use the "Uniform Classification", but will be required to do so as from January 1, 1957. "'Operating income equals operating revenues 

less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. < 4 >The 1956 figures are not strictly comparable with previous years, due 

to the addition, in January, of 5 railways and the deletion of one. On a comparable basis, revenue tons carried in February 1955 would have been 12,100,000, revenue tons 
carried one mile 4,539 million, revenue passengers carried still 21 million and revenue passengers carried one mile 175 million. ("Pacific Great Eastern Railway 

included as from January, 1956. Source: Railway Operating Statistics, D.B.S.

Note.— This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 31 companies operating in Canada representing 86 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. <»The Canada totals for most months in 1954 and 1955 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national 

total are not yet available for the provinces. Although the Canada totals are comparable throughout, the provincial monthly data for 1955 are not strictly comparable 

j with those of 1954 due to changes in the manner of reporting new business by several companies. For the same reason, monthly data for 1956 are not comparable with 
those of 1955. On a comparable basis, the Canada total in June, 1956 was 17% above that of June, 1955. The annual figures for Canada and the provinces are consistent, 

' although the 1955 data are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance Agency Management Association,

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

(') Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. <» Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. '"Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

Gross National Product At $29.5 Billion In Second 
Quarter 

The recent sharp gains in Canada's seasonally 
adjusted gross national product continued unabated 
in the second quarter of 1956, the increase over the 
first quarter amounting to more than 3%. This latest 
advance has brought the level of gross national 
product to an annual rate of $29.5 billion, compared 
with $28.6 billion in the first quarter of this year. It 
appears that about two-thirds of the increase over 
the first quarter of this year was represented by a 
gain in the physical volume of production with price 
factors accounting for the balance of the rise in 
value. In the first half of this year, gross national 
product rose by more than 10% in value terms and by 
between 6% and 7% in terms of the physical volume 
of production, compared with the same period of a 
year ago. 



Three major developments have emerged as the 
dominant features of the first half of 1956. These 
have been the very high levels of fixed capital in- 
vestment expenditures currently being undertaken by 
business, the high rate of business inventory ac- 
cumulation, and the heavy current account deficit or 
import balance, which averaged $1.2 billion at 
seasonally adjusted annual rates in the first half. 
Total final expenditures by all groups, plus invest- 
ment in inventories, were running at an annual rate 
more 'i'han $4 billion above the corresponding period 
of 1955, as the table below shows. Business invest- 
ment in plant and equipment and in inventories 
together accounted for close to one-half of this 
total increase. At the same time, about one-third of 
the total $4.0 billion increase was met out of im- 
ports rather than Canadian production, alleviating 
to some extent the demand pressures being placed 
on Canadian production.

These sharp advances in the national expendi- 
ture have been accompanied by some upward move- 
ment in prices in most of the components of gross 
national expenditure. At the total GNE level, prices 
have risen overall by about 3% since the second 
quarter of last year, with about 1% occurring in the 
current quarter. The most pronounced increases 
since a year ago have been in the non-residential 



construction and machinery and equipment cate- 
gories, where price factors (including costs) showed 
a gain of about 7%. The price (and cost) factor in 
residential construction was up 5% and export and 
import prices (on the national accounts basrs) were 
up by 3% and 4% respectively over a year ago. Con- 
sumer prices overall have risen by only about ]% in 
the year-over-year comparison. 






The rise in output between the first and second 
quarters of this year was concentrated in durable 
goods manufacturing and. in construction. The in- 
crease in the durable goods group amounted to 5%, 
with large gains recorded for transportation equip- 
ment (up 22%), non-ferrous metals (up 8%), and 
electrical apparatus and supplies (up 5%). The iron 
and steel group, which moved upward in the first 
quarter, remained level but was producing at a rate 
about 15% above a year ago. 

Associated with the above increases in output, 
the industrial composite employment index rose by 
3% above the first quarter, after allowance for 
seasonal factors. This most recent increase brought 
the index to a level 7% above a year ago. The 
number of paid workers in the non-agricultural labour 
force was 6% above the second quarter of a year 
ago. The number of persons without jobs and seek- 
ing work amounted to about 3% of the total labour 
force in the second quarter of 1956. Compared with 
one year ago, the number of persons without jobs and 
seeking work had declined by about 23%. 

These increases in output and in employment in 
the second quarter were accompanied by the largest 
advance in labour income since the latter part of 
1950. Corporation profits were also higher in the 
second quarter with a gain of about 5% over the first 
quarter. 

On the expenditure side, all of the major demand 
categories showed increases in the second quarter, 
contributing to the gains over a year ago as noted 
earlier. A single exception was investment in in- 
ventories, where the rate of accumulation slackened 
from the extremely high level of the first quarter. 
Investment in plant, machinery and equipment con- 
tinued to move forward rapidly. Residential con- 
struction, which declined in the first quarter, showed 
an advance as housing completions rose; however, 
the fall-off in housing starts in the last few months 
indicates that the rise in completions is temporary. 
Durable goods purchases, which had also fallen off 
in the first quarter as automobile sales declined, 
moved upward in the second quarter as seasonally 
adjusted sales of new passenger automobiles rose 
30% above the first quarter level. Imports and 
exports, seasonally adjusted, continued to rise 
sharply and the deficit on current account showed 
little change from the first quarter rate. 

Labour Income, Consumer Spending and Saving 

Up: — The latest gain in labour income has raised 
the level of wage and salary payments to a point 
about 11% above the second quarter of 1955. The 
increase over a yeai; ago reflects a rise in the 
number of paid workers amounting to about 6%, with 
the balance accounted for by an increase in hourly 



average earnings. Average hours worked per week 
in manufacturing showed little change from a year 
ago. The gain of 5% which occurred between the 
first and second quarter of this year appears to re- 
flect an increase of 3% in employment in the main 
non-agricultural industries, the balance being 
accounted for by increases in average hourly earn- 
ings. 



The gains in labour income from the first to the 
second quarter of this year were widespread but 
were especially marked in construction and in dur- 
able goods manufacturing. Agriculture, forestry, 
mining, public utilities, transportation, storage, 
communication, trade and the service industries 
were all higher in the second quarter. 



The large gain in labour income in the second 
quarter was accompanied by an acceleration in the 
rate of consumer spending. Personal expenditure on 
consumer goods and services rose by 3% (compared 
with 2% in the first quarter), with gains occurring in 
the durable, non-durable and services groups. This 
latest increase has brought the level of personal 
expenditure on consumer goods and services in the 
second quarter to a point about 7% above the second 
quarter of 1955. 



Consumer expenditure on durable goods, which 
was moving downward in the first quarter showed a 
sharp rise in the second quarter (of 9%), reflecting 
for the most part an upturn in sales of passenger 
automobiles. Total personal expenditure on durable 
goods was up about 11% over the second quarter of 
a year ago. 

Consumer expenditures for non-durable goods 
and for services were up 2% and 3% respectively 
over the first quarter of this year, and 6% and 7% 
respectively over the same period a year ago. From 
the first to the second quarter, the gains in non- 
durable goods purchases were widespread, affecting 
all groups with the exception of clothing purchases 
which showed a decline. It may be noted that Easter 
occurred in March of this year and that Easter sales 
are included in the first quarter figures. Relatively 
little movement has occurred in the price of con- 
sumer goods as a whole over the course of the past 
year; at the total level, an increase of only about 1% 
is shown. This increase from a year ago is largely 
attributable to higher prices for services, with small 
declines in the price of durable goods offset by a 
small advance in the price of non-durable goods. 
Since the end of the second quarter of this year, 
non-durable prices have shown a further advance, as 
food prices have been rising. 



The rising level of consumer expenditure in the sharply than deposable income, there was a sub- 

second quarter was supported by a sharp increase in stantial rise in the rate of saving ,n the second 

dtLosable income which rose by almost 5%. This quarter of this year, from $1.4 billion in the first 

was' I gely attH butab e to the ve'ry marked advance quarter to $18 billion. The latter figure constitutes
